Thee Grate Church ov MOO, Reformed
It seems that like many a great man, Robert Anton Wilson is dying, and is penniless. If you can afford it, please give him some money to help ease his last days on this planet...and who knows, he might even get better with better medical care! If I get a job, I will be sending money...I recommend if you have ever enjoyed or been enlightened by his works, please ship him off at least $23 as a show of respect to a man who has given a great deal to this planet.
Here is the information to send him money.
Any donations can be made to Bob directly to the Paypal account firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can also send a check payable to Robert Anton Wilson to
Dennis Berry c/o Futique Trust
P.O. Box 3561
Santa Cruz, CA 95063.

Help out RAW...He is auctioning off some stuff to raise money. Why help him? Because this guy has helped out so many of us with his writings and works.
Check out this Ebay item...and watch for more notices of his selling of stuff. He will be autographing all things he sells!http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=270000805511

Okay: enough complaining. It's time for yet more talk, but this time, talk about action!T-shirt Slogan Contest! (Winner gets free cookie, three paperclips, and a half-charged AA battery)
Propose slogans/designs for MOOist T-shirts people might actually wear (bonus points if you can identify what kind of nutjobs you're marketing them to).
Red Text on Black. Background design: Psychick Halfy
Large Print: My Religion Is More Than A Bumper Sticker!
Small Print: it's also a t-shirt
Tiny Print: www.churchofmoo.com
(The advantage of this is that there is an obvious tie-in bumper sticker to sell also...)
I was recently informed that the Church of MOO is discussed in this book here
, among 200 other "New Religions". This is all very well and good, but where are the damn T-shirt sales? Hmm? That's what I want to know.
Granted, I haven't made or advertised any... but isn't the miracle of the internet that you can make money without even a business plan? This lack of income has burst my bubble. So to speak.
I just realized last night the incredible gravy train that MOOism has been missing out on for far too long: consumerBLATT
Take a look at the Insane Clown Posse. (No, really, take a look
... they're morons) But they've got it all figured out.
Step 1: create a cult.
Step 2: make it so that status in the cult requires purchasing swag.
Step 3: make 1 million US dollars.
This is the Grate Profit of MOO that we've all been waiting for for years. All we need are some T-shirt designs and a more aggressive viral internet campaign. Let's get the old MOOism engine running again, this time in the holy name of cashola! For once we can use this cult as an instrument of evil, not good!
Can I get a "hell-yeah"?

I am hereby going completely against the edicts of the office of the Cardinal Richelieus of MOO, and am calling a MOOfest for the night of Tuesday December 20th, 2005.
This MOOfest is to be held at 1666 Ridge Road, Vankleek Hill, Ontario.
Ashtray? What Ashtray?
What happened to www.churchofmoo.com? I can't get through to it.
The Office of the Cardinal Richelieus of MOO.
Ia Ia MOO OMM!
(as a footnote, I was stunned to discover that my church-of-moo letterhead is still being hosted on the server of a company for whom we did a website something like three years ago. I figured their new webmaster would have found it and deleted it by now).
